I decided to start exploring the “categories” part of blogging and whilst foolin’ around with settings and options I deleted the only category i had, which was not really a category at all, but just a placeholder called “Uncategorized”. Now that I’ve deleted it, the entire “category system” for my blog is messed up. Nothing is consistent and it’s a mess.
Fortunately, it doesn’t affect my ability to post blog entries or do other things, and for my readers, such as you, it probably wouldn’t even be noticed… but it really bothers me.
I’ve posted about this on WordPress.com’s support forum and hopefully I will get some answers soon.
